The 2012 to 2022 Smart Grid Roadmap presented in this report by Zpryme and Clasma offers a general framework intended to enhance collaboration efforts that can spur the innovative technologies and progress that puts nations around the world on a path toward abundant, clean and affordable energy. The Energy 2.0 vision and technology progression represents the possibilities when Smart Grid integrates with other forms of urban infrastructure – water, gas, roads, transit, public safety, waste management, etc. – to help build and run smarter cities. Global urbanization is accelerating rapidly, and all of these elements will need to be more centrally managed to keep pace. These needs create significant opportunities for technology companies, especially those with strength in networking and IT. However, the next five years will be make-or-break years for entrepreneurs and technology vendors as their equipment, solutions, software and systems will be expected to yield positive returns to utilities.
